Abstract

We investigate electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) and Autler-Townes (AT) splitting in Rydberg rubidium atoms for a six-level excitation scheme. In this six-level system, one radiofrequency field simultaneously couples to two high-laying Rydberg states and results in interesting atomic spectra observed in the EIT lines. We present experimental results for several excitation parameters. We also present a two theoretical models for this atomic system, where these two models capture different aspects of the observed spectra. These models shows very good agreement to the experimental data.
